PAWS celebrates International Spay Day

Posted by siyerwin on Thursday, February 11, 2010 at 9:02 PM

Just a really quick post to let everyone know about the free spaying/neutering which PAWS will be having at the shelter tomorrow in celebration of International Spay Day!

Below is the PAWS announcement:

We invite everyone to have their pets (dogs and cats) spayed or neutered for free at the PAWS Animal Rehabilitation Center in Aurora Boulevard, Katipunan Valley, Loyola Heights, QC tomorrow, Feb 12 - SPAY DAY at PARC - 9am to 4pm.

Please also extend this invitation to the poorer members of your household (household helpers, drivers with pets, their relatives, etc) and the community (i.e. that neighbor of yours who seem to be having a tough time taking care of their pets because of their financial situation. Fixing their pets means they won't be burdened with unexpected puppies or kittens)

Spay-neuter will be on a "first come, first served" basis, so please come early tomorrow. Gates open at 9am.

Benefits of spayed/neutered pets:
-they won't contribute to the pet overpopulation problem
-they are healthier (less likely to develop reproductive cancers)
-they are less likely to be aggressive
-they are less likely to stray outside the house and get lost (Intact pets often 'escape' from yards in search of a mate)

See you tomorrow! =)

-The Philippine Animal Welfare Society (PAWS)

Important Reminder: Please make sure that your pets are fasted (no food and water) before undergoing the procedure. PAWS recommends that you do not give food and water to your pet from 10pm of the day prior to the morning of operation. Please CLICK HERE to learn more

PAWS Volunteer Applicant Orientation and A Few Updates About This Blog

Posted by siyerwin on Monday, February 01, 2010 at 1:31 PM

There will be an orientation for new PAWS volunteer applicants on February 6, 10:00 AM, at the PAWS Animal Rehabilitation Center (PARC). See map at the PAWS Website, or, if you need a somewhat more detailed instructions on how to get to the shelter, go to one of my previous posts on how to find the animal shelter.

After the orientation, there will be a seminar on humane dog catching that will be held on the same venue (3:00 PM). Local barangay officials are especially invited for this so kindly extend this invitation to your barangay officers. This humane education seminar is free and is an integral part of animal welfare groups' advocacy for the humane treatment of all animals.

A Few Updates about

This blog is still alive and kicking and although I've been out of the loop as of late, my heart is still with the animals and, pending resolution of my time management issues (hard to explain but let's just say that I now almost have two full-time jobs, among other things), I wish to resume active volunteering/blogging duties some time in the future.

I apologize to the comments here that are left unanswered. I also made a huge blunder of accidentally deleting about 5 legitimate comments so I also apologize to those who left those comments. It will be great if you guys re-post those comments as there was one there from a fellow animal lover who made a short note about his/her own animal rescue efforts. I have been doing this for years and have never made that mistake before. Other comments tend to be repeats of previous questions that I have already answered so I am working on some sort of FAQ section so please stay tuned. Those posting something about selling pets will not see the light of day on these pages (I've been working on a post about this for ages, hehe). If you wish to give away or abandon your pets, please send an email to me directly because I would like to try and change your mind. There are kinder options that you can take.

As usual, if you wish to receive quicker replies, I suggest emailing me through sherwin @ mefindhome . org

Also, you might see some weird changes in the appearance of this blog because of some changes in Google's (this blog is hosted by Google's services. I am thinking of moving the hosting somewhere but that will also entail a significant amount of time but that may be the direction this blog is going to.

Finally, thank you to those who send in their donations through this blog. Not being able to thank you personally is something I regret all the time but please know that whatever you give do help the cause and the animals that continue to bear the brunt of human cruelty and neglect. PAWS or any other animal welfare organization can't do it alone after all.

Thank you very much and see you all at the shelter! :)
